EdUSA Romania Intern Coordinates Virtual Essay Writing Workshop

EdUSA Romania Intern Coordinates Virtual Essay Writing Workshop

On October 27, Maricela Dominguez, EducationUSA Romania VSFS intern and senior at Florida International University, joined the Fulbright-EducationUSA Romania team for a virtual essay writing workshop, for the benefit of Romanian high school students.
Throughout the webinar, Maricela provided practical tips to help students approach the personal essay, deftly guiding them through interactive self-discovery activities as a way to zoom in on the core of their personal story and what distinguishes them from their peers. She also highlighted the importance of thorough research and painstaking revision.
Participants eagerly contributed to the discussion and had a chance to ask questions on the “do’s” and “don’ts” of essay writing.
The Virtual Student Foreign Service (VSFS) is an internship program run by the U.S. Department of State enabling American students to intern remotely for different agencies and organizations all over the world.
